Marianna Quartararo has learned how to work with the soil she has! Well done!
"I am in northeast PA in Lackawaxen, a few miles from the Delaware River. I built this house and have been here for about 10 years. Soil is non-existent here on top of the mountain so I must amend the thin, acidic soils I have with many loads of horse manure and other compost. I spend as much time as possible working in and building new garden areas for flowers and vegetables. Presently, I am clearing the lower portion of my yard in order plant shrub borders interspersed with perennials. All in good time."
